. >> good morning. stacy schiff who is a wonderful biographer among others cleopatra recently observed that biographers all have to lives. okay in the back? can you hear? in one round she says to biographers, you are moving forward in ignorance. in the other you are moving backward with something resembling omniscience. but what she doesn't say is that along with the illusion of something like omniscience a biographer usually has a lot of attitude to display. one can be worshipful, page of graphic celia pius or one can be a muckraker. one can defend or defame, expose sensationalize sentimentalize. one can be a myth buster or a myth maker. and not many generalizations can come to the whole spectrum. but marcel pruest could do it and did when he wrote in the early work before the big book. it's a little book in there he says what intellect restores to us under the name of the past is not the past. in reality, cut in reality as soon as each hour of one's life has died it embodies itself in some material object and remains captive forever unless we should have been on the object recognizin
